I am sure many of you are aware of the writer Diana Gabaldon's hilarious snit-fit over discovering fanfiction. Fandom Wank has got you covered for details. Leaving aside everything else (Fanfic is like having sex with my husband! Or white slavery! Or home invasion!), I am madly amused by Ms. Gabaldon's indignation over...*gasp* ... sex scenes in fanfics based on her works, seeing that her books have scenes that put some porn to shame. Not to mention that no fanfic I ever came across in my entire life had a sex scene as downright sick and disturbing as the one in her novel Outlander (which is the only one of her books I had the misfortune to read). Yeah, this is a woman who wrote a scene where evil bisexual sadistic villain who is a dead ringer for heroine's first husband nails heroine's second husband's hand to the table and then proceeds to rape him in every way possible while also breaking his arm and also making heroine watch. While it's all described in all its (literally) gory detail. He also makes second husband climax which even in my then-limited-experience state I knew is pretty impossible unless one is a truly deranged masochist - when you have your arm broken with bone sticking out, you are NOT going to be climaxing, I am pretty sure. At that point the book went from "boring and pointless and with too many sex scenes" to "OMG, this is vile, and I also never want to meet this author in a dark alley!" So, Ms. Gabaldon, you hardly have a ground to complain. I am boggled why anyone likes your books enough to write fic about them but whatever the quality of the fic, it can't be as abysmal as the quality of your books themselves.

In other amusing news, did you know that if you have asthma, the best thing to do is smoke up?
